    Agreed. I get Berube's logic on it, but is it a great idea to ask your top line to completely break from their normal style of play in a playoff series? They're taking a big risk if they're in fact...

    Though only 3 of those games have occurred in the last 5 seasons.
  3. Sticky: Emery has very good career numbers versus the...

    Emery has very good career numbers versus the Rangers.
  4. Sticky: Very hard to win in the postseason w/o really...

    Very hard to win in the postseason w/o really high quality goaltending, no matter what team you're talking about. I thought the Pens were the better team vs. you guys 2 years ago, but your...
  5. Sticky: Special teams are always huge in a short series....

    Special teams are always huge in a short series. And it doesn't necessarily come down to how much you score or kill, but when. The key is getting the big kill or PP goal when you really need it.
  6. Sticky: No, it isn't. But it's not over confidence. I'll...

    No, it isn't. But it's not over confidence. I'll admit that the Flyers are very good and capable of beating the Rangers. Their forward depth is excellent and Giroux is the best player amongst...
  7. Sticky: It would be nice, and really helpful, if they can...

    It would be nice, and really helpful, if they can win this series without playing the full 7. Takes so much out of a team to go the distance.
  8. Sticky: McDonagh will be fine. Supposedly could have...

    McDonagh will be fine. Supposedly could have played last night, but they elected to sit him.

    Kreider is another story. Still no timetable on him. He had the surgery on Friday the 28th, so he's...

    Mason is listed as day-to-day, but Berube is saying he'll be fine and ready come Game 1.

    Actually not that surprising with how good they've been over the last 41.

    25-12-4 over that span, with 120 goals for, and only 85 goals against.
  11. Sticky: With the way they've played Philly over the last...

    With the way they've played Philly over the last several seasons, it's a favorable matchup.

    Just worried about playing Tampa or Montreal down the road. Bishop and Price are both Ranger killers.

    St. Louis, despite his lack of production, is a top-line, elite player. I would agree that Step, Brass, Richards, Hags, and Krieder are second liners, but I think Zucc might be a top-liner. As for...
  13. The injuries, etc were a factor. But the big...

    The injuries, etc were a factor. But the big factor was really the adjustment to the new system and how that played out particularly over those first 10 games.

    I've given the numbers before, but...
  14. Slumps are hard to predict and hard to explain....

    Slumps are hard to predict and hard to explain. They kind of just happen.

    But I don't think he's played poorly. He's had chances, been involved, and he's been around the puck. They're just not...
  15. Marty is a HOF'er and an all-time great, no...

    Marty is a HOF'er and an all-time great, no doubt.

    But put it all in perspective.

    Not even the best of his era. Roy and Hasek were both better and by a fair margin. And Belfour was just as...
  16. You can't predict cup runs and deep playoff runs...

    You can't predict cup runs and deep playoff runs though, with most teams. Often, it's the team that gets hot in the right places and the right times that wins.
  17. I thought they played great yesterday, didn't get...

    I thought they played great yesterday, didn't get a break, and Niemi played out of his mind. I'm not happy they've failed to gain more points over the past few games, but I do like a lot of what...

    3-4 weeks is the prognosis.

    Are they counting the time though from when he injured it or just from now?

    Horton in Columbus and Clowe in NJ did not help the situation either. All three got absurd deals.

    Horton's is probably the most reasonable as it's only something like 5.3 vs the cap, but they gave...

    I'm really pleased with how they played. I thought they outplayed them, out possessed them, forecheck was strong all night, and they did a great job on Crosby.

    And they beat a team that's great...

    They need a shooter on the wing other than Nash.

    Love the speed and skill they have, but really they lack on more shooter.

    Cally actually blew that assignment. He needs to be a step more towards the slot as opposed to closer to the circle, and maybe a shade higher too.

    Glad someone else said that or had that thought.

    And he did not register a SOG, missing the net all three times.

    If you want sniper money, you better be a sniper and bury those.

    I only caught the 3rd period.

    I'm not surprised though. I think these guys are really looking ahead to tomorrow night in PIT. And also, I think they were due for a let down.

    From what I saw...

    All valid points, and there's a large group of teams amongst those I mentioned that he wouldn't consider.

    But just because you or anyone else thinks that a particular team is a bad fit or that he...
